Song of the Week.

Who doesn't love music?

For me, it takes my mind off of bills, career, dating, and other aspects of life.

I let go and go on a ride of pure bliss and dopeness.

Jazmine Sullivan.

If you don't know her, consider checkin' her out.

Lyrics: "I'm not scared of lions and tigers and bears/but I'm scared of loving you/I'm not scared to perform at a sold out affair/but I'm scared of loving you/Am I the only one who thinks it's an impossible task?/Why it don't last, is that too much to ask?/Why do we love love when love seems to hate us?/Sorry if I sound so filled with gloom/you say you care and I know you do/But, this is from my experience/and my conclusion only makes sense/Just 'cause I love you and you love me/it doesn't mean that we're meant to be/I can climb mountains, swim across seas/but the most frightening thing is you and me."

Her lyrics touch me, deep. Real deep. For some, she may not do it, but for me she does. I feel like I'm under a microscope being inspected by everyone who passes by when I listen to her. I feel naked. I feel like some one's been reading my skin. But, the skin I haven't read yet.

I think Jazmine's lyrics speak a massive amount of truth:

"I'm scared to try 'cause I'm scared to fail/I'm scared to die, 'cause I'm scared of hell/I'm scared to kiss, I'm scared to hug/I'm scared of sex, 'cause I'm scared to touch/I'm scared to look, 'cause I'm scared to see/I'm scared or you 'cause I'm scared of me/I'm scared to fly, I'm scared to crash/I'm scared to move on so I live in the past/I'm scared to fight 'cause I'm scared to bleed/I'm scared to love 'cause I'm scared he'll ain't human without fear."

What music touches you?
